This chapter describes the theology of holiness in the book of Deuteronomy in order to interpret the ordination of Moses as a charismatic teacher of the divine word. The research by R. Otto on the religious experience of the numinous informs the study of Moses as a religious leader, who mediates holiness as a dynamic force in the life of Israel. The chapter offers an interpretation, through the charismatic teaching of Moses in the book of Deuteronomy, of the literary structure, divine transcendence, and the way in which holiness invades the profane world of humans.

Keywords:   holiness, ordination, divine word, Deuteronomy, Moses, charismatic teaching, numinous, R. Otto, divine transcendence, the sacred and the profane, the New Testament
